Michael Boldin and John Lambert lead the charge on Tenther Radio this week for the 56th episode. Michael’s nephews Trent and Pierce Boldin happened to be in studio and Pierce popped in on the mic to say “Hi,” to all you Tenthers.

Lambert has been working behind the scenes for a long time but tonight was his first time co-hosting.

Boldin shared the happy news that Jason Rink’s film Nullification: The Rightful Remedy won the award for Best Feature Length Documentary at FreedomFest in Las Vegas. Tomorrow in Newbury Park, the Thousand Oaks Tea Party will be hosting a free screening of the film with special guest Michael Boldin.

Lambert is not much of a fan of Texas Governor Rick Perry, but he gave him some credit for telling the federal government he will not participate in Obamacare, refusing to expand Medicaid or implement exchanges. Cassandra Anderson blogged about it here.

The key to advancing the cause of liberty is activism. Organizing is hard and often thankless work. But – there are those willing to dedicate their time and energy. They put aside their time for freedom….for all of us.

Tonight, we talk with one of our best young activists in the country, Maine Tenth Amendment Center chapter coordinator, Chris Dixon. Chris has been making inroads and connections with groups often not interested in liberty..and we hear a little about what makes up his secret sauce.

During the news segment of the show, the hosts discussed New Hampshire passing a law protecting jury nullification.  Lesley Swann described jury nullification as, “It offers juries the opportunity to judge not only the facts of a case …but actually the jury can judge the law, and they can choose in specific cases set aside the law.”


Tentherism, an Introduction

Add to iTunes

TRX: Tenther Radio makes its debut on Natural News Radio this week!

It might be their first night on the network, but it’s also the 1-year anniversary of the program. Michael Boldin and Lesley Swann take you on a tour of Tentherism – the principle of decentralization that the establishment left AND right both despise. From weed to war, health to marriage and everything in between – the answer is local.

During the early part of the show, Michael Boldin discussed what Tenther Radio is all about:

“We discuss the top Tenther news of the week from around the country.  This could be things that cross the political spectrum.  It could be resistance to the NDAA.  It could be health care freedom acts. It could be state marijuana laws.”

Baker is an Associate Professor at Georgia State University.

Tenther Radio Episode 49: Local Interposition and Top Tenther News

Michael Boldin and Lesley Swann talk about local and state governments standing up to reject federal power. They welcome PA constable Ed Quiggle who has signed a resolution promising his office will interpose against the Feds on NDAA and the Patriot Act.

In the news, NJ decided that despite a federal ban, sports betting will be allowed in the state. Governor Christie, in his blunt way, says that if they want to try and stop NJ, go ahead and try and stop them.

Next week is hemp history week, and Lesley is working on a post highlighting the issue and the TAC’s Hemp Freedom Act as well.

The Arizona Nullification initiative already has 1/2 the signatures it needs to qualify for November’s ballot!


Agenda 21, NDAA, Sound Money – and More

Add to iTunes

We’ve some awesome guests packed into our little 1 hour show. First of all, North Carolina state rep Glen Bradley joins us to talk about his two bills there on Agenda 21 and NDAA detentions. Glen discusses the NC “short session” and the process for getting bills out of committee and to a floor vote.

Also joining the show is Doug Tjaden with some big news! Doug announced tonight that the Sound Money Center project that he’s been building for some time now is going to be folded into the TAC umbrella. Doug will be heading up that effort for the TAC and will be using the Center as a place to educate and activate people in support of Constitutional Tender.

Michael Boldin and Lesley Swann cover all the hot Tenther News that’s fit to print – or to talk about – too. Closing the show, Michael shares a special message on foreign policy from TAC columnist Joel Poindexter.


There’s Actually Some Good News?

Good news? Surprising, but true. A federal court blocks 1021 of the NDAA, Missouri moves towards sound money, North Carolina to vote on NDAA, New Jersey rejects Obamacare exchanges – and more. Nice to talk about something positive once in a while. But, Joe Wolverton and Mike Maharrey bring some bad news too – not really a downer, just some important truths.

Joe Wolverton discussed the NDAA 2013 passing out of Committee.  He reacted by comments made by some of our representative by saying,”We don’t care about Habeas Corpus.  Habeas Corpus is just the fever.  We are talking about the disease.  The disease is an American citizen being suspected of causing and posing a threat to the homeland being indefinitely detained in a federal prison.”

He pushed the point of nullification by saying, “The fact is we don’t have to obey illegal federal acts, or executive edicts.  Nullification is a sound and timeless principle Constitutional Jurisprudence.  We do not need to enact nullification laws in the states.  We do not need to rely on the courts to strike down this or that provision.  All we need to do is recognize that we as a people in our collective capacity as states created the federal government through the Constitution.”

When asked about the concept that if it isn’t Constitutional then it is not law, Wolverton answered, “The law has a definition, and as being trained as a lawyer I know what it is as do all Americans in their hearts.  You don’t need to be taught what a law is.”
